Apple seeds OS X 10.11.4 beta 5 to developers and public testers

OS X El Capitan

Apple on Tuesday pushed out the fifth beta of OS X 10.11.4 to both developers and public testers. The beta is available either via the Mac App Store, in the Updates tab, for those who are already running 10.11.4, or on the websites of each of the respective testing programs.

Today’s beta comes one week after Apple seeded 10.11.4 beta 4 to developers, and nearly two months after the first beta was released. It’s mostly under-the-hood improvements, but it does include a few new features such as Live Photo support and password-protected Notes.

We’re installing beta 5 now, and will report back if we spot any other significant changes or new features. As these releases get more frequent, it seems like Apple is close to pushing them out to the public. It’s possible it’s planning on doing this around its event later this month.
